Here is the truth without compromise - the path of enlightenment from the dark nicht of materialism to the shining daylight of transcendecne. Matter, Sirit and the Controller of Both, The Spiritual Master, Yoga and Neditation for the Age of Quarrel, Spiritual Solutions to Material roblems, and Love of God the Ultimate Goal, plus discussions on western philosphy and science.
The quest for enlightenment spans centuries of human existence. And Quest presents answers to the perennial questions that have stirred the hearts of philosophers.
Is it possible to unravel the puzzle of God, creation, and human existence? Many great minds have failed the task, but there is no puzzle for the greatest mind—God's. Drawing from God's words in the Vedic scriptures, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami, who comes in an unbroken spiritual lineage from Sri Krishna, answers questions about the views of famous Western philosophers and their approach to philosophy and science.
At the dawn of time Brahma sat in trance, seeking
inspiration to create the universe, "Who am I?" he wondered. "Where have I come
from? What should I do?" Then the Supreme Being, Krishna, revealed himself,
flooding Brahma's heart with transcendental knowledge. Passed down since
Brahma's time through an unbroken chain of gurus and disciples, that same
profound knowledge is ours in The Quest for Enlightenment.
A special feature of Quest is a series of conversations in which the author
gives the Vedic point of such Western philosophers as Socrates, Jean-Paul
Sartre, and Carl Jung. "In my darkness I could have wished for nothing better
than a guru," wrote Dr. Jung, "someone possessing superior knowledge and
ability." Srila Prabhupada and the teachings he presents in The Quest for
Enlightenment are what Jung—and we—are looking for.
